these days. while biden is a se-- here's betting that age alone won't derail the biden '16 train. but here's something that might. hillary clinton. she is by far the biggest obstacle standing in biden's path. her popularity has soared in the four years. she put the natural claim as obama's right ffl successor. so much so that i doubt biden or anyone else will run if she does. there is, however, a good argument to be made that clinton will end up passing. popularity she's enjoyed these past years is new for her. remember how she and her husband were tormented by the other side. she's proved all she wanted to prove in elected politics and wants to try something else. if clinton isn't in the mix, biden claimed the obama mantle will be strong. and loyal v.p.s into popular second term presidents have a leg up in getting nominations think of george h.w. bush. that's when he called himself pro-choice and ran for president calling reagan's presidency voodoo economics. he spent the neck eight years serving the president. five other republicans ran against bush in 1988 each claiming to be a more wor
